For Trump, quiet parts get said out loud on the scorched-earth path to the bunker: Nobel Prize!

Unhingery abounds at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. When it comes to voting rights in our pandemic election year, President Donald Trump has a habit of saying the quiet part out loud. Is it a short-circuit in the super-ego or Trump jettisoning the filters because there are 80 days left. And the distractions emerge, because doesn’t Trump deserve the Nobel Prize (his COVID “policy” promotes…

Trump blurts out his true motivation for kneecapping the Postal Service

It’s like Mr. Burns from The Simpsons is running for president. Or maybe Homer. Or some ungodly combination of the two.

Herman Cain’s twitter account is now tweeting without acknowledging that he has passed away. Can verified accounts outlive their owners? Hopefully he won’t be requesting any mail-in ballots.

yet another Trump presser – more chicken-in-every-pot promises

Q: What do you mean by an “invasion” in the suburbs if VP Joe Biden is elected? President Trump: “They're going to destroy suburbia. And 30 percent of the people in suburbia are minorities.  They say 35 percent, but I like to cut it lower. This one’s importance is in opposition to the Biden-Harris joint…

Trump thought Biden would pick Karen Bass because she wouldn't 'outshine' him

Apparently, Donald Trump can’t conceive of a running mate who isn’t the quasi-vertebrate equivalent of premasticated Cream of Wheat. Four years ago, Trump chose Mike Pence, who’s basically invisible when he’s not conspicuously smooching Trump’s ass. And being the sick, sick little man he is, Trump thought Joe Biden was just as craven and megalomaniacal…
